Hey guys I just bought my sedan today and I love it!

Taffeta White Si Sedan

Full HFP Kit and Installation
Mudguards (already on car)
Wheel Locks (already on car)
Trunk Tray (already on car)
Zxilon (already on car)

$24,XXX

I know I didn't get a great deal but it wasn't markup either so Im living with it. Going to poor for the next 5 years considering Im 18 and on an hourly pay and a full time student :biggrin:

It is a little faster than the GSR but considerably more fun to drive.

My question though:

Is it worth it to buy the throttle body spacer, and IMG or a CAI?

I know the TBS and IMG give gains and the CAI does but sickyute had both and the CAI made no difference.

Welcome, Id say go for the IMG, TBG and TBS, is a little more gain than a CAI and alot cheaper.
There is a post showing a dyno with all of IMG TBS and TBG, then when they added the CAI there was only a VEEEEERY slight gain. I wouldnt even bother with the CAI if I was just starting.

Sickyute just did a change from AEM to Injen. He seemed to be really impressed with the results and there is no hesitation like the AEM. He has a thread here about the new mod. http://www.8thcivic.com/forums/showthread.php?t=10926
